Centre back - Marquinhos

Football News

Now a Paris Saint Germain player, but his stats from his former club AS Roma reveal how good this 19-year-old has been. 

Brazilian Marquinhos has been the standout performer in an admittedly open back line.

He has made more last man tackles this season (10), who leads his side for both interceptions (2.9) and aerial duels won (2.2) per game, proving that his reading of the game is at the level of a far more seasoned pro.

He now plays alongside Thiago Silva and that will certainly help him get better and better.
